ENGCV251

Construction 1

An understanding of the properties, limitations, and selection of materials used in civil engineering construction is fundamental for a practising civil engineer. Hence, this paper covers in more detail the physical, chemical, and mechanical properties of common civil materials such as concrete, timber, steel, polymers, and composites. The paper also introduces the students to construction process methodologies, project planning, documentation, health & safety and temporary works.
